The Shipping Professional Network in Mumbai (SPNM) is Mumbai’s own meeting place for young shipping professionals established in Aug 2011 following footsteps and success of its sister organization – SPNL (The Shipping Professional Network in London – www.spnl.co.uk). Through our regularly organised events, we aim to bring together young professionals from all aspects of the industry to network, socialise and learn more about the industry we proudly form part of. Our events offer members the opportunity to hear expert opinions on topical issues by industry respected leaders, from various fields in the maritime industry. These fields range from the bunker industry, ship valuation, maritime law, ports, piracy, ship classification, shipping finance, maritime economics, research and much more. Being a member of SPNM not only provides you with a ticket to these informative presentations from industry leaders, but also a multitude of networking opportunities!

Looking forward seeing you at our next event!


Our next Event will be held sometime in Auguset/September and next workshop will be held on in October/November.
